Format: Paperback
Written from the viewpoint of those living in Leningrad when they were besieged by the Germans. Very interesting read for those who enjoy historical war stories. This is historical fiction and very well written.

I read this on my kindle. The Seige of Leningrad and its sequel The Betrayal were both great reads.

Haunting Nov. 23 2011
By Miss Melly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the story of Anna's stuggle to survive the siege of Leningrad, to provide for her family, to stay alive.
You almost feel guilty reading this novel with a full belly. Dunmore drives the hunger into your heart and the Russian winter into your bones.
It doesn't feel quite right to call this novel "beautiful", considering the subject matter - but it is.
Hauntingly beautiful.
harrowing truth to a suffered community May 12 2014
By Betty Bartlett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The day to day perseverance of a city is told with passion. Another disaster from an unnecessary war
and almost destruction of european nations.
The Siege - read it June 16 2013
By Meg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well written, described the anguish of ordinary Russians experiencing starvation and dreadful conditions. Always aware of the dangers of exposure to horrendous political tyranny and still determined to survive. Gritty and real.
A gripping story Dec 19 2012
By Janet Colson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an absorbing and touching book. Dunmore creates a vivid world through her poetic words. As I learnt about the terrible seige of Leningrad, I could almost feel the crippling cold and ferocious hunger the characters endured, but Dunmore's lightness of touch makes the subject bearable. The emotional threads are well drawn and the story gripping.
